Which do you prefer?

Coming off FM's question on whether the Tickford wings should remain or not, I thought I'd put a poll on the Tickford branding vs Ford Tickford Experience (FTE) branding.

I think Tickford has a well established name now and a change would only hurt Ford, However I do think that FTE might be used for vehicles that arent necessarily tickford but have some tickford accessories on them, for instance, the twin headlight nose cones for the XF falcons that make them look like they are and XR. Mods like these need to have an association with the main company that started it all!

My Opinion!

Def Tickford!

FTE has never really cut it into the market with the mustang and other attempts!

If you ask your everyday bloke this question:
What do you think of FTe?

His most likely answer would be:
What's FTe?

Scrap FTE - Long live Tickford!

Despite being an FTE punter I am taking this vote the exact way it's worded and in an either/or situation I have to go with Tickford. Still would have thought there was room for both though ...

Even though I dont think there should be either (!!)
I would say Tickford by a mile .. the current use of the word 'experience' will soon be just another fad and be irrelevant.. somewhat like the word Extreme.

hmm..back under my rock
